- THE STATE OF CSR IN AUSTRALIA:
The Innovation Imperative Taking CSR from Risk Management to Value Creation
Proudly Hosted and Sponsored by NAB
15 February 2012 | Melbourne
Auditorium, Ground Floor, NAB, 800 Bourke St, Docklands
Start the year with the information you need to succeed in 2012!
Proponents of CSR have long argued that CSR brings benefits to both business and society. For business, the benefits are a good reputation and the chance to avoid or minimise risks to business stability. But is there more to the business case than that?
Can CSR actually create new value for a business, by helping to invent new products, provide services in less costly ways, open new markets or design unique business models? Can it also improve the quality of governance and management?
This conference will assert that innovation and value creation are the next frontier in demonstrating the business case for CSR.
